"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Canadian troops are active in the Iraqi theater.

Officials at the Department of National Defence confirmed Wednesday that Canadian troops are helping in the war on Iraq.

The officials said Canadians are aboard American AWACS radar planes flying missions over Iraq. AWACS planes are used for surveillance, and command and control operations.

About 31 Canadian soldiers are serving in exchange assignments with U.S. and British forces.

As well, The Globe and Mail reported Thursday that six members of the Armed Forces are serving in logistical or support positions with combat troops on the ground.
